Second IPWG Meeting

 Neustadt an der Weinstraße, Germany

Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to the second meeting of the International Phytoplasmologist Working Group that will take place in September 2011 in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, Germany, organised by AlPlanta, Institute for Plant Research.· We like to continue the tradition established by the first IPWG meeting in Bologna in 2007 to bring together researchers from entomology, molecular biology, and plant pathology to increase and expand knowledge about phytoplasma diseases worldwide. This second meeting shall provide an overview over the ongoing phytoplasma research and, therefore, all topics dealing with new advances in phytoplasma research are welcome. As for the first meeting we will ask you for extended abstracts which will be published in a special issue of Bulletin of Insectology. The abstracts will be evaluated and revised by the IPWG scientific committee. In addition, meetings of the COST action FA0807 “Integrated Management of Phytoplasma Epidemics in Different Crop Systems” will be integrated into this second IPWG meeting. We look forward to welcoming you in Neustad.
